Are you ready for a double dose of the Joker?
Just a day after an upcomingwas announced, a second film featuring the clown-faced Batman villain made the news.
Jared Leto will reprise his role as the Joker, and Margot Robbie as his murderous love, Harley Quinn. Robbie must really love that Harley Quinn role — she’s also a planned film about Gotham City’s female villains.
This Warner Bros. Joker-Harley Quinn film sounds much more mainstream than theannounced by Deadline (and ) on Tuesday.
The more serious Joker film — which may involve legendary director Martin Scorsese — will fall under a new, as-yet-unnamed division of DC films that will break out of the comic book canon and create original story ideas with familiar characters. But this Joker-Harley Quinn film is expected to fit into the group of the more traditional DC movies, such as “Justice League” and “Wonder Woman.”
Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to a CNET request for comment.
